    In August of 2011 Peter and I have visited this brick factory

    Here some info:
    After the First World War the owner of the roof tile factory in Ramskapelle gets the opportunity to start a new factory in Kortrijk. Next to a canal, a good transport route for export to England the new factory was build.

    In 1924 the first tile was produced by Céramiques et Briqueteries Mecaniques du Littoral. In 1933 the first tunnel oven in Belgium was employed.

    In 1959 the production was expanded by prefab walls. The tile business went bad, so other export possibilities were explored. But in the 1980's the tile market improved, the company was focussed again on roof tiles.
